Exclusive Photo: Lamar Odom And Father Spotted Leaving Venice Liquor Store
It looks like Lamar Odom and his father Joe are trying to mend their turbulent relationship after feuding in the press last moth.
HH has obtained this photograph from TerezOwens.com of the duo leaving a Venice Beach liquor store on Friday evening. The image was snapped shortly after the pair grubbed inside popular hamburger joint, Hinano’s. Lamar, sporting a black sweatsuit, walked a few feet ahead of his father wore a yellow T-shirt, shorts and a blue baseball cap.
According to a witness, Lamar and Joe “looked to be in good spirits.”
The Odom sighting comes just days after reports surfaced that Lamar cut his father off financially, refusing to pay the rent on Joe’s luxurious Marina Del Rey condo.
The NBA veteran and his dad have had a troubled relationship since the baller was a young child. In a message written last month from Lamar’s Twitter account, Lamar blames Joe for his alleged crack addiction:
“He wasn’t there to raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons … he is my downfall! His own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave to me,” Lamar wrote in response to an interview Joe gave to RadarOnline slamming the Kardashian family.
The 33-year-old’s reported drug abuse and infidelity has also been the cause of the reality TV star’s marital woes. Khloe Kardashian recently dropped Lamar’s last name from her social media accounts, and although has been spotted still wearing her ring, has reportedly been highly considering divorcing the troubled athlete.
